It was not a great year for this value portfolio, with only 5 stocks in positive territory for the year.

Fossil Group has done most of the heavy lifting among the small stocks in the portfolio, though there are other winners, too.
FOSL is up 92% since I launched this group, while HIBB is ahead 27%.
It is always important see how such value screens perform in times of market stress.
